President Muhammadu Buhari has conveyed to the Senate his decision to withhold his ‎assent to 2 different Bills passed by the National assembly.

The Bills are the Chartered Institute of Treasury Management establishment Bill and the Federal University of Wukari establishment bill.

This was contained in a letter read on the floor of the Senate by President of the Senate Bukola Saraki, at Tuesday's plenary. 

President Buhari explained to the lawmakers that he withheld his assent to the bills in pursuant to section 54 subsection 4 of the constitution due to  some phrases used in the Bills. ‎

He also forwarded to the Senate, a proposed legislation seeking to establish the Nigerian Natural Medicine Development Agency.

The proposed legislation is expected to boost alternative medicine practice in the country.

Also, President Buhari requested the lawmakers to repeal and re-enact the Raw Material Development Council Act, and to also consider and pass into law, a bill for an act to establish the Federal Institute of Industrial Research.‎‎
